Recommended Webinars December 9-13: Talent Crisis, Digital-Led Transformation and Workforce in the Age of Automation
This is an incredibly busy week – 10 webinars in four days. Looks like 2019 is going to go out with a bang! So put on your cozy socks and dig out your mug Snuggie (see how I did that, tying everything into the image above?) and settle in for a webinar by a warm fire.
The first 2020 events are starting to go up as well, so don’t hesitate to keep an eye on January. Speaking of which, if you are planning your webinar schedule beyond this week, I recommend “The dos and don’ts of stakeholder engagement & collaboration” from Proactis and Peter Smith on January 21st.

This webinar will be based on the results of IACCM-led research into talent management from a practitioner perspective. So we can expect to hear less about what Senior Management thinks of their current talent situation and more about how employees feel that they are being positioned for success – or not – based on the upskilling and training they require to continue performing at the best of their abilities.

This webinar has several things going for it: 1. The speakers are Andrew Bartolini and Paul Blake, 2. It acknowledges that going digital does not equal transformation, instead it leads it or makes it possible, and 3. It is going to be “an engaging, winter holiday-inspired webinar”. WINNING!

According to this event’s description, “The long-standing debate of the human workforce against the digital bot is now over.” Apparently, it is a tie, because they go on to emphasize that companies have to invest in and leverage both human talent and automated efficiency if they want to be competitive in the long run.
